Men's Lacrosse Scholarships

Lacrosse has been a key college sport since the 1870s, and today there are nearly 300 programmes for men and over 350 for women. Students train for up to three hours a day, whilst maintaining a full academic schedule. And academy teams compete in a busy calendar of elite level intercollegiate matches for the National Championship titles in each of the sport’s three divisions

While the number of foreign college lacrosse players remains low, university coaches do recruit worldwide and are always looking for special talents who might develop into great players over in America.

How Good do you Have to be?

These are the general guidelines for what coaches look for in a lacrosse player. You can still get a scholarship if you don’t meet these requirements, but it will be more difficult.

    How many Lacrosse Scholarships are Available and What Colleges Offer Them?

    Not all colleges that are eligible to offer scholarships will choose to do so. For example, Ivy League schools choose not to offer athletic scholarships. Lacrosse is an equivalency sport, which means all scholarships are not full scholarships, and coaches can divide the value of the scholarships available to them between as many players as they see fit. Full rides are very rare.
